Calculator Questions

I e-mailed Jennifer Schroeder, program officer and webmaster for Clean Air-Cool Planet, regarding two questions about CACP's emissions calculator that were raised at last night's meeting. The questions were:

1. Do the majority of colleges using this calculator collect data based on fiscal years, academic years, or calendar years?

2. We use part of the steam we make in our on-campus cogeneration plant within the plant, and this could affect our steam efficiency data. Does the steam efficiency category of the calculator take this into account, or are we expected to subtract the amount of steam we use internally from the amount of total steam produced when we use this number for the steam efficiency calculation?
